, and fourth republicans need it. >> jennifer: and they do need it. in the last election the republicans lost the latino vote badly. the democrats won among latinos, 71 to 27%. that's what is known as a crashing defeat. here is why. remember this? >> i think the american way is not to give taxpayer subsidized benefits to people who are broken our laws or are in the united states illegally. >> of course we build a fence and we do not give in-state tuition credits to people who came here illegally. >> jennifer: that went on and on, and we know how that turned out for them. latino made up 12.5% of the overall electorate and they would have had even more of an impact if all of the eligible hispanic voters had voted. because all of them make up 17% of the total u.s. population and just 10% of the voters this year. so they are punching below their weight. so pew estimates that that voting block is going to double in size over the next generation. it is a huge number. another member of the gang of eight, senator john mccain seems to have gotten the message. >> i'll give you a lit

. >> jennifer: so we saw the same sentiment emerge in israel's elections this week too. the electorate pushed back against conservative benjamin netenyahu. and a new leader gave voice. >> [ inaudible ] these are generations left because of israel's middle class can no longer survive the economics. >> jennifer: his party won the second-most seats after netenyahu's. so this movement really does seem to have some legs and not just in the middle east. we're seeing similar concerns in china. there a boom in highly educated young people has significantly changed the work force in china in the last decade. china now has 11 times as many college students as it did in 1999. and while that sounds like good news, the economy hasn't produced enough white collar jobs, so many of those graduates are unemployed, and wages are stagnated, so this is the challenging new world john kerry is going to face. good news is there is no one more prepared to face it. joining us from skype is zbigniew brzezinski. he is a counselor and trustee at the senator for strategic and international studies.

have seen from the president in the weeks and months since he won election is a very aggressive stance in dealing with republicans. the quote that really stuck out to me is we cannot mistake absolutism for principal or treat name calling as reasoned debate. those are words that make clear he is ready for a fight and he is not going to be back away from it. he seems to be changing his pattern with the way he deals with senate in his second term. he is trying to make clear that he is done with it. i don't know if he is in fact done with it because a lot of things happen between the principals that you lay out in a speech and what you do when it get tos time to govern. so he is going to have a lot of negotiation going on, and some negotiating away from the principals that he has laid out. he said he has changed his position that he said he wouldn't change at all on the tax line. but he seems to be taking a very different approach. >> jennifer: hank i want to play a sound bite. take a listen. >> obama: our journey is not complete until all of our children from

'll just change the election by changes the votes and you can see it in dunes bury. there was no photo i.d. that was the way to diminish the vote of young people and african-americans and other minorities. what it did was so enrage the african-american community they got out and voted. they said we're not going to take this and they came out and the vote was good. it's the only way they can win. they are not the majority party in this country. >> michael: they're going to keep doing it. the problem will be if that rage continues. they have to keep the rage against this going. i want to turn your attention to another issue of the house that they'll be facing. as a minority member of the house you're probably pessimistic. but another day another shooting. this time a community college in houston, three people were wounded. do you think congress with a meaningful gun legislation has a chance of passing in the house that you sit in right now? >> i really don't. i hate to say that, but i've said it before. the nra is in the dna of the g.o.p. they're not going to let it out. they might have a

there still are a few. let's take a listen quickly to representative tom cotton. he is a newly elected member of congress and a military veteran. here is what he says. >> to have women serving in infantry though could impair the mission essential task of those units, and that has been proven in study after study just from a matter of -- it's nature. upper body strength and physical movements and speed endurance and so forth. >> jennifer: is it just about strength or it is something els. >> the congressman's comments were really out of line and not based on facts. there are women who could do these tasks, because they are being recruited right now is another question, and we don't have our best and brightest necessarily joining the military, because today men are randomly assigned to the combat arms units and women aren't even given the opportunity to compete for the assignments. if you look at professional athletes, cross-fit competitions, you know there are women capable of doing these jobs. not all women want to be infantry men or special operatives but some do,
